Today was 19 degrees Celsius!!! That is WHOPPING by London standards of late. To celebrate all those new sensations of lightness and brightness, I made a strawberry, apple and rhubarb mocktail reminiscent of traditional English country gardens (recipe to follow in issue 30 of Gathered Magazine) and sewed up a whole lotta ombre dip-dye scarves with dainty little rolled hems for the shop. All topped off by a bit of park-walking and balcony-knitting. Why can't everyday be this uplifting?!

In honour of my recent and belated reunion with my old friend, the sun, I have made some fresh new tank tops for my shop. I know I said I was trying to bring more colour into my life, but I couldn't resist a bit of monochrome tie dye and, well, lacy backs just work well in black.

Spring is finally here and for the love of sunshine I have vowed to not wear so much black. Bring on the bright tights in a rainbow of hues. By the way do you like my new shoes? ;o)

This was my Friday, on a plate. I know it appears that I am 7 years old, but this is, indeed, what I currently do for a living!
When you're in need of a new accessory to pep up an outfit, look no further than your sewing stash. I love giving tucked-away things their moment to shine and the fact that it costs me nothing!

Do you have a favourite t-shirt from childhood? Recently, on a trip back to Mum's place,
I rediscovered my old Brownies t-shirt in surprisingly good nick. The only problem was
that the neck and arm cuffs were too small, so I decided to revamp it. Here's how you can
do it too:
I've been doing a bit of DIY around the flat lately and have been trying to do it on the cheap. Art prints can be really expensive but here's a way to whip up your own art in minutes and all it really costs you is the price of the frame plus a bit of card stock and printer ink. Here's how I did it.
